Executive search requires a detailed and systematic methodology from the beginning to ensure the search is executed effectively and the correct candidate is ultimately hired.

In today's talent acquisition market, search firms need to add a much higher level of service than in the past. Over the years Strategic Consulting Japan has been constantly enhancing our recruitment processes to offer the highest level of talent acquisition support within the Japan market. We utilize a strategic sourcing methodology that goes beyond job boards and LinkedIn.

Upon commencement, we invest the time and resources required to deeply understand our client's needs, then we target specific professionals by leveraging our referral network. We utilize a strategic, analytical and methodical approach to executing each and every project. Throughout our executive search process, we offer Japan market intelligence, confidentiality and transparency.

All candidates are deeply screened prior to introduction utilizing "Performance-based Hiring methodology". (See below complimentary Performance-based Hiring Tool)

Unlike "contingent" search firms, we are client centric and offer our clients candidate exclusivity. Once a candidate has been selected, we negotiate on your behalf.

Another important key differentiator is we have developed a proprietary background check tool, these reference and background checks are completed in a very thorough manner, our clients tell us it saves them several months of management discovery.
